©2016 Noraimah Said/ #diaryofaprodigalchild / What do you think about lanterns? - thoughts? I personally think lanterns are somewhat magical. Magical in a sense where, eventhough people know lanterns are a human creation and not the living, people still tend to believe and put their hopes in it. Which is to an extent, quite impressive and bizarre. Don't you think? In fact, even in some cultures especially among the Asian community. They tend to utilise lanterns as means to grant their wishes, reach their dreams and also goals. This can widely be seen when lanterns play quite an important role when it comes to festivities, celebrations or gatherings. This is because, some cultures believe that lanterns bring luck, grant hope, welcomes prosperity and most of all happiness. As can prevalently be seen during this festive month of Lunar New Year celebration. Lanterns are hung almost everywhere which for decades are no longer a rare sight to see. Some say this cultural practice derives from the Chinese community, which I still have yet to find out. As I mentioned before, I do not preach on things that I do not have good solid grounds on. Regardless, Happy Lunar New Year to those who are celebrating. Photo taken not so long ago, when I was curious about Hôi An, Vietnam. The place is truly a reflection of its own history. And the resemblance of the place with ancient town of Melaka is not wholly uncanny but rather a little strange at some point. The aligned architecture, the temples and especially the shophouses are just too similar. #hôian #central #vietnam #southeastasia #asean #asean50 #lanterns #ancienttown #heritagetown #asiancommunity #lunarnewyear #wanderlust #travel #travelogue #travelstoke #traveltoinspire #travelgoals2018SEA #livetoinspire #thediscoverer #goanywhr #worldnomads #writetoinspire #introspective #capturingmoments #momentumtravel

Zhujiajiao - ещё один древний городок, находящийся на краю Шанхая, только к Новому Году сюда наконец-то провели метро, что конечно привело сюда орду любителей покричать и вонючего тофу, но если не в праздник, то место стоит того чтобы на него поглазеть #china #zhujiajiaowatertown #zhujiajiao #shanghai #discovershanghai #ancient #ancienttown #ancientchina

‘Little Shop of Lanterns’ . . . . Hoi An is known for many things and one of them is lanterns. It wasn’t hard to see why on my arrival to its beautiful and well preserved (#UnescoWorldHeritageSite ) Ancient Town, particularly at night where it comes even more alive with hundreds of lanterns lighting the way. Hoi An was one of my favourite places on my travels through Vietnam and I would have happily liked to have stayed longer. . . . . . #Vietnam #HoiAn #HoiAnTown #Unesco #UnescoWorldHeritage #AncientTown #VietnamCharm #SoutheastAsia #AsiaTravel #AsianWanderlust #BeautifulAsia #VisitVietnam #InstaVietnam #IG_Vietnam #IGVietnam #VietnamWonders #ILoveVietnam #Wanderlust #Globetrotter #Travel #Adventure #Intrepid #Wanderlust #SeeTheWorld #HQ_Globe #BeautifulDestinations #DigitalNomad #VisualAmbassadors | Day 12 of #ZionaExploresSEAsia

Ancient town from 200AD, enjoyed our home visit with Mr Li 明初解缙诗曰“大圩江上芦田寺,百尺深潭万竹围。柳店积薪晨爨后,僮人荷叶裹盐归” #大圩古镇 #大墟古鎮 #daxuancienttown #chinaguideofficial #ancienttown #chinainsider #guilinchina
